Natalie + Aston | In-Home First Birthday | Illinois Family Photographer
I looooove this family 😍 Even though I haven’t known them very long, it feels like it’s been a lifetime. Natalie first contacted me when she was pregnant with Aston, and her and her hubby Dave braved the cold and snow for the most extra maternity session I’ve ever done. Hell, I still talk about it to this day! It’s one of my all-time favorites, so of course I was pumped when they wanted me to document Aston’s first year. It’s a little bittersweet that this was our last session, but I have every intention of forcing them into family photos at least twice a year 😂Too much?!
Sweet, sweet little Aston. How awesome it’s been to see him grow from the tiniest little peanut to such a little man! He’s seriously the smiliest baby ever and I can’t even with his cute little face. I just want to squeeze him all da time. Also, I can’t wrap up this little love note without mentioning Natalie’s style and the outfits she always puts Aston and herself in. I always know I’ve got nothing to worry about and don’t even give her wardrobe inspiration anymore. I’ve said it before, but I would totally hire her as my personal stylist and if I ever stop caring about sitting around in no pants and a messy bun so much, I will.
P.S. this is my in-home studio! It’s a constant work in progress, but I’m psyched to finally have it close enough to completion to put it into use. Hit ya girl up to avoid the cold, do allll the cozy in-home sessions, or shoot some boudoir for your man. I’m obsessed!
